We stayed for one night here and were so pleased given some of the reviews were mixed. The staff were super friendly. The building was beautiful and well kept despite its history they've maintained its character. The room was just stunning and spanned across 3 levels. My kids were so excited to be sleeping in the tower (with A/C) and have a jacuzzi bath. The main room was lovely too really rustic and well kept.
Food menu wasn't extensive but perfectly tasty and lots of local fresh fish. Again it was the scenery that really made the alfresco dining under a light canopy surround by the ancient convent building and the steep green hills. There was a jazz band playing too.
The gardens are exceptional meandering down a lovely path which is lit at night time and leads you to a big pool and lounging area. Again all in keeping with the rustic feel but perfectly clean.
There was also plenty of room for the kids to play with a ball and the beach is a 15 min walk.
We've been recommending this place to anyone wanting a few nights away to somewhere special.
